Really enjoyed the tour and seeing all the birds being cared for. Wasn't sure what to expect, but turned out to be the highlight of a 10 day visit by family. Tales of feather repair and a room full of hooded birds kept listeners enthralled when our visitors returned home. Even pictures couldn't tell all the tale.

Very informative and interactive even for my one and 3 year old children who were able to touch and see a range of falcons. Very nice day out 5 stars

We went to the falcon hospital with no expectation but was pleasantly surprised. Overall it was a nice experience, the staff was very attentive and they also offered free beverages. I do think however the group was too big. People will push infront of you and you can not see everything. For the price you pay i would expect the... More

The Falcon Hospital is very near to Abu Dhabi airport on the highway heading to Sweihan. It is worth visiting since the introduction to falcons' world and veterinary cares is truly interesting. Do not forget to book in advance. Such a discovery has a price ... quite high ... but invested without any regret.

I've never been so fascinated and educated in such a great way, these falcons are beautiful and the doctors who dote on them have a fantastic manner with them and talking about their work with them. if you want something different to do in AD, do this!

While Abu Dhabi is a lovely and clean city with unique sparkling modern sky scrapers -- the Falcon Hospital provides a glimpse of the culture and sport of Falconing. I found it absolutely fascinating. It's a working veterinary hospital for Falcons. Tourists and customers enter a shared waiting room, where hooded falcons waiting exams are lined up until their number... More

The best compliment I can give this hospital is that my wife said it was the highlight of our holiday.......and she does not like birds at all! From the moment we arrived we were treated superbly by the staff, the tour was interactive, informative, and good fun. We learned about falconry is the Emirates and it's importance. We also saw...

A little way out of Abu Dhabi and if going by taxi, make sure the driver really knows how to get to it. Seeing how these birds are looked after is an eye opener and we were lucky enough to see a small operation taking place on one of the falcons. Very good tour with friendly staff and guides who...

It's amazing to see the falcons being brought into the hospital for their medical check-up and pedicure. They're very well trained and are calmly waiting until it's their turn. Tip for the management : don't make the tour too long. The cage with the birds is really overdoing it, as well as the trophy talk. No need for that please
